Dyckia encholirioides is a sea coast dweller and it can not be found away from the sea. If it does not hear the southern Atlantic Ocean waves it won´t be happy..

No matter how many habitats we´se seen and visited it is always  thrilling.
It is always a first time ever....and we do not cease learning...

Dr. Jones (Dyckia jonesiana), Dr. Vilson, Dr. Henrique, Dr. Rodrigo Pontes (Dyckia pontesii).
Southern Dyckia lovers and friends of mine. they together know more about Dyckia than an ecyclopedia. A book must rise from those brains.

 Dr. Vilson, me, Dr. Henrique and Dr. Jones.

What a vision!

This is the Restinga vegetation and Dyckia encholiriopides habitat in Northeast Santa Catarina.
A cold and windy place during winter.

Restinga is a most important habitat close to the sea and on the sand dunes. 
Without it this place would be a desert. 

This stays  a kilometer from Vilson´s house in Barra do Sul-SC

Dyckia encholirioides and Dr. Henrique...imagine this place when these plants are in full bloom.

Drs. Henrique and Vilson, young prestigious Brazilian botanists.
The future belongs to them....
